The Lang House was built in 1919 as a country residence far removed from the hustle and bustle of downtown Chicago.
At the time the area was known as Birchwood Beach Estates in Rogers Park. The Touhy and Rogers families who developed the area on large land holdings, advertised the lots as a "country club beach style getaway."
The Lang family moved into the home originally designed by architect, Edgar M. Newman.
Over the years the home has housed a radio station in the basement, several families and served as a women's boarding house for female students from Loyola University.
